Almost Christmas…

Hi All..

I know I’ve been slacking on my blog posts.. what can I say? As with all of you, time is racing away from me!

Here’s a sweet pic of Daisy sitting under the tree.. isn’t she adorable?!?


Proof that I can cook (some things anyway!). My daughter is going away for a few days early on Christmas day so I thought I’d cook a turkey this past Sunday.. doesn’t it look great? It’s also cooked all the way through! I took a pic of it to prove that it’s cooked. :D


We had a very basic dinner, just a turkey, crock pot stuffing and sweet potatoes.. here’s a pic of my plate, I wasn’t hungry by this time so I only ate about half!


Simple decorations on my front porch.. white chair I got for $1 at a yard sale this summer, topped with an enamel bowl, filled with greens trimmed from the Christmas tree and some twig balls; an enamel pitcher with greens and some rough-cut ornies.. and a birdhouse on top of my old milk can. Simple but kind of rustic too. To date we’ve had barely any snow and that’s okay with me!


Sorry it’s a short post.. I baked over 11 dozen cookies Saturday night and brought in 8 doz. to work.. brought home the rest today (3!). Had to leave work early yesterday, not feeling well, went to the doctor, some kind of ear infection so wasn’t up to posting.. lol.. oh the excuses are just rolling in now!

Merry Christmas all!


  1. Have a wonderful Christmas!
    Love your outside display!
    Best wishes,Christine

  2. Time is getting away from me here also! Hopefully things will slow down a little in 2010.

    Hope you feel better soon...

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Merry Christmas to you and your daughter :)

  9. Daisy is adorable under that tree! I had a daisy girl once too, she was a chow mix. Very sweet dog, I miss her!

    Love your porch decorations. The greens really bring out the season in this picture. Love the whole ensemble!

  10. Thanks Angie!! I really love Daisy, she is such a sweet little girl, such an expressive face too (up-close :). I haven't taken any of the porch decorations down, they've been covered in a layer of snow.. but I'll probably leave it even when it's melted, at least until spring!
